A Perth woman killed in a suspected murder-suicide has been remembered as a loving and dedicated mother.
Georgia Lyall’s lifeless body was discovered inside her South Guildford home Thursday by emergency services, less than an hour before her former partner and father of her child was found dead in a fire-damaged unit 22km away.

Neighbours, who have been left shaken by the harrowing incident, laid flowers at the front of the Sabina Rd home on Friday.
Neighbour Bella Harding described Lyall, 32, as a doting and caring mother who loved her five-year-old son “so much”.

“We only knew Georgia for a year but in that short time we knew that she was kind and funny, self-sufficient and incredibly generous, both with her material things and her time for other people,” she said.
“She was such a loving mother to her son and my heart goes out to that family and her child.”

A crowdfunding effort has been launched by a family friend in the wake of the tragedy, with Lyall remembered as a “beautiful, bright and bubbly soul”.
“Fiercely loyal, independent, funny and caring, there wasn’t a day that went by where Georgia didn’t make a positive impact on someone’s life,” a tribute from Amber Koltai, who set up the page, read.
“Our Georgia was selfishly and devastatingly murdered in her own home and those close to her are now faced with the crushing reality that life will never be the same again.
“Georgia leaves behind her beautiful, vivacious and loving five-year-old son who is now in the care of Georgia’s wonderful mother.”

Less than an hour after Lyall’s body was found, her former partner Luke Noormets was discovered dead inside his burning Innaloo unit.
The Rebels bikie nominee, 33, is understood to have set fire to his Escott Rd property, before dying from self-inflicted injuries about 11.30am on Thursday.
After allegedly murdering his former partner and the mother of his child, Noormets fled on a motorcycle.
It is understood he was the one who alerted police to the shooting via a Triple Zero call.
7NEWS was told Noormets was discovered wearing a tactical vest, leading to speculation his life could have ended in a shootout with officers.
Police said authorities had used phone records to quickly link the two addresses and piece together Noormets and Lyall were formerly together.

Authorities do not believe anyone else was involved and “do not have any concerns for the safety of the wider community”.
It has since emerged Noormets previously spent time in jail for the brutal abduction of a man.
At the height of the violence, the victim was doused in petrol, set on fire and later waterboarded.
Major Crime Division Detective Inspector Dave Gorton confirmed that murder-suicide is one avenue authorities are looking into as they piece together exactly what happened on Thursday.

“It’s fairly unusual. The fact they are linked — every murder is tragic,” Gorton said.
“It’s unfortunate these incidents do occur in our community.
“Especially for the first responders and investigators and the other emergency services that do attend, it can be quite a devastating situation to come across.”
Inquiries are ongoing and anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers.
